Inmates at the Kuje prison are in shock that the former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro is now one of them.
Many of them were excited and curious to know what led to his detention, according to The Nation.
According to a source, the inmates were amazed to see Moro in prison custody barely one year after he visited the facility as the interior minister.
It will be recalled that Abba Moro was in charge of the mass recruitment drive in the Jonathan Administration, which resulted in stampedes in the Abuja National Stadium that left 20 people dead.
Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Monday remanded the former minister in prison custody over his alleged complicity in a N676million job scam.
A source said the former minister was brought to the prison around 12 pm on Monday and made to undergo the standard procedures for inmates.
The Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS), Public Relations Officer (PRO), Francis Enobore, said an inmate was free to feed himself, adding that it is standard practice to allow inmates to provide their food themselves.
